An article by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 1962) in which she attempted to play both sides of the street, implying on the one hand that the creation of the Japanese-American internment camps was a reasonable measure in wartime; but the reader doesn't have to have a degree in psychology to recognize that she believed otherwise:

"'A Japanese is always a Japanese' is an easily accepted phrase and it has taken hold quite naturally on the West Coast because of some reasonable or unreasonable fear back of it, but it leads nowhere and solves nothing. Japanese-Americans may be no more Japanese than a German-American is German...All of these people, including the Japanese-Americans, have men who are fighting today for the preservation of the democratic way of life and the ideas around which our nation was built."

Read the letters of American soldiers and Marines who recognized
the injustice that was done to the Japanese-Americans...
